Yes!, being one of the largest and most visited cities in Mexico, local government keeps security tight to ensure that tourism continues to flourish. Due to that fact more and more people travel to Guadalajara to receive medical and dental treatment.

What kind of food can I find?

Guadalajara is one of the richest cities gastronomically speaking. Locals know the places that serve the best food, so don't hesitate to ask around! head to the busiest stands for some authentic comida jalisciense (food of Jalisco state). Tortas ahogadas, the most popular dish of Guadalajara, are "drowned sandwiches" made with a dense roll stuffed with pork and drenched in spicy red salsa. Or satisfy you hunger with a filling bowl of pozole, corn hominy soup made with either pork or chicken. If you like your food hot and spicy, choose red pozole; otherwise stick with the white. Another specialty of Jalisco is birria, a spicy Mexican meat stew made with either goat or lamb. The meat is baked slowly with spices, traditionally in an underground earthen oven. A plate with minced onions, cilantro and limes accompanies your bowl of birria so you can garnish it to your liking. Don't forget to say: ̈Buen provecho ̈ (Bon appetit)! Try “carne en su jugo” a delicious beef and bean stew, at Karne Garibaldi; this restaurant has several locations for you to choose from.

Lodging

Guadalajara offers hotels of all ranges. Our best advice is for you to choose a hotel that is near the area that you’ll be frequenting; or if you receive medical treatment book a hotel near your clinic.

Transportation

The Centro (downtown) is mostly accessible by walking. Most attractions lie within an area of about 3/4 of a mile long by 1/4mile wide. For longer trips, or to get in and out of the Centro, use the bus, subway, or a taxi. There are also horse drawn carriages (calandria), which are more expensive and mainly for tours of the historical center of the city. A city of this size and infrastructure has various types of transportation that you can use. However, the best option is to use UBER for safety and reliability. Another good way to move around the city, if you don't mind driving, is to rent a car. If you want to visit more places far from the city, having a car will allow greater advantages and comfort for any activity you want to experience.
